Advisory Council

Mission

The School Advisory Council is a consultative body of caring parents and parishioners who are committed to the Catholic School and serve to support and assist the Principal for the good of the school community. In consultation with the Pastor and Principal the Council has responsibility for matters involving planning, policy development and compliance, finances and development.

The Council supports the Pastor, Principal, staff, students and families in fostering a fertile environment for the spiritual, academic and social growth of our children. The Council encourages and promotes a community of learners and role s growing in wisdom and understanding in a Catholic atmosphere of dignity and mutual respect.

"Do your best to preserve the unity which the Spirit gives by means of the peace that binds you together...So when each separate part works as it should, the whole body grows and builds itself up through love." Ephesians 4:3, 26

 

Meetings

The School Advisory Council generally meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Pemberton Library. Each meeting is open to all parents and legal guardians of students at HFCS.

Parents or legal guardians wishing to address the Council must submit their request in writing to the Principal, or Chairperson seven days in advance of the meeting to obtain approval. Such requests must fall within the responsibilities of the Council: planning, policy development and compliance, finances and development.
